Using WINE


When using WINE do I install the program I want to use under WINE or do I have the program installed under Windows on the Windows partition and I just access the program in Linux through WINE? In other words can I just bootup to SuSE and download a windows program then install it through WINE and run it or how does that work. I know that not all programs will run, I just want to know how WINE works. Thanks

You can do it both ways. Using the installation from your windows HD and you can also install it on your linux partition in a fake windows folder.

You can't use all programs via wine. I'd search a tutorial on MSOffice if it's there (I think it is cause I read it should work via wine) but better would probably check out openoffice.org or staroffice.

I recommend Stefan Schultz' guide for setting up Wine.
